The project has provided a high quality housing development on a previously forgotten site within the centre of Edinburgh. It also provided an opportunity to resurrect the much loved colony housing which is synonymous with Edinburgh but with a more contemporary approach. The scale of the development is appropriate for its surroundings, and has produced a community feeling. The development has been well received by existing residents of the area, planning officers and officials, members of the planning committee and its current occupants. It has been a real success story with all 36 colony units sold.

The development was completed in December 2014.
